(Minghui.org) After practicing Falun Dafa for nine years I still feel its really tough to eliminate my attachments. It was only recently that I realized the problem.
While reaching out for the divine with one hand, I was clutching my human attachments with the other. I know how great Master and Dafa are and would never give up cultivation, but I struggled to let go of worldly matters.
I also struggled with the hostility I received from people when talking to them about Falun Dafa. People yelling, curing and ridiculing me, and threatening to report me to the police.
I often complained about the difficulties I faced and forgot that these were all opportunities to improve in my cultivation.
With so many attachments and a strong desire to see an early end to the persecution, I felt drained.
After studying the Fa and frequently reading other practitioners' articles on Minghui.org, I gradually climbed out of this mental anguish.
I realized that when people don’t understand us, we should look inward to see what is wrong on our part. If we cultivate ourselves well, our environment will also change for the better.
I decided to set aside my attachments and take everything lightly.
When I go out to clarify the truth I always talk to each person with a compassionate and peaceful mind. Regardless if they choose to listen, I always try to leave them with a good impression of Falun Dafa.
One young practitioner said that if we handle everything with Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance there is nothing that we can't resolve.
I wish those practitioners who’ve experienced similar tribulations can eliminate their attachments, and lift their spirits. Cultivation can become easier if we do so, and they will find a different realm. Let’s all hurry up and improve!
